Mork

The sweater is named for my favorite 70’s sitcom character famously played by Robin Williams. Mork’s form of handshake involved an interlacement of fingers with his partner that resembles the cable on this sweater, and that makes me laugh. Thus: Mork.

Choose finished size depending on how you like your sweater to fit, but know that the ribbing is stretchy, and offers a wide range in each finished size. Sample was knit in a size 42” to fit a 41” bust, but also flatters with negative ease up to 48” bust.

Note on yarn choice: some 100% wool yarns may make this sweater look a little stiff because of the ribbing pattern. It’s up to you and your stash, but I think a yarn with a small amount of silk, or up to 50% alpaca content is a good option for this pattern.
